French Ice Dancer Suffers 'Nightmare' Of A Wardrobe Malfunction During Competition

Gabriella Papadakis held her nerve to post an impressive score despite the costume malfunction

French figure skater Gabriella Papadakis suffered a wardrobe malfunction during a dance routine at the Winter Olympics, which she described as her "worst nightmare".

Emmanuel Papadakis, a warm and upbeat entrepreneur who runs a food truck business in Austin, told USA TODAY Sports of his disappointment at the embarrassing malfunction that saw Gabriella's breast briefly exposed as she competed with Guillaume Cizeron in the short dance. Amazingly enough, even as they were dealing with her costume, Papadakis and Cizeron took second in the short dance.

"But it won't knock her down", Papadakis said.

During the final level of her performance, this mishap took place and the worst happened is that it got telecasted on global TV. "So that is what we did, and I think we can be proud of ourselves because we were able to do a great performance, despite what happened".

Papadakis, with her partner Guillaume Cizeron, is one of favourite figure ice skaters of the event, and among top contenders of gold.

Cizeron, 23, who took almost all the couple's questions from reporters after their skate, said it was frustrating to lose points over a costume malfunction.

Papadakis' partner, Cizeron, commented, "It's a little bit frustrating to know that it's not because of something that we did".

Hopefully they'll avoid having another accident for the free dance on Tuesday and luckily the malfunction didn't set them back too far.

"I felt it right away and I prayed".

Rather than halting the performance, Papadakis finished.

"It happened in the first few seconds of our routine, so I told myself I had no choice but to keep going", she said. They have won three gold medals on the Grand Prix series.

NBC edited the accidental R-rated gaffe out of future broadcasts and videos online. The pair scored a total of 205.28 points, finishing behind Canadian duo Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir. She altered the routine to prevent the costume from completely slipping off.

That they managed to score so well quickly became a point of celebration.

But like a true competitor, the skater kept her poise, and the pair went on to grab the silver medal.
